Power Out Book 2 continues the award-winning comic that reads like Hansel and Gretel as done by David Lynch and Haruki Murakami
I published the first Power Out book with the help of a Xeric grant, so this time I'm raising money to print 300 copies of the next volume myself. And when I say print it myself, I really mean print it myself: I plan on buying a quality laser color printer and an Atomic Binding Machine (it's not really atomic) and lots of toner so that I can make softcover volumes on demand. The 60 pages of artwork is all done, so the money is to pay for the printer, toner, the binding machine, paper, printing the cover (I want the cover to be a little nicer than the interior pages, so I'll bring that to a print shop), and arguably the most absurd expense, folding the paper (I could buy my own folding machine, but they are surprisingly expensive. And producing 300 books requires folding 30 x 300 = 9000 sheets - that's a lotta folding!).
If all goes according to plan, I'll have books ready by mid April. Thanks for your support! Check out this short documentary by Djakhangir Zakhidov, shot mostly in my ridiculous Brooklyn studio.
Also, I've been asked why you can't order a copy of Power Out: Book One here. I'm sold out! BUT you can read up on Power Out where it is serialized weekly at ACT-I-VATE. Also, I'll give you a .pdf file of the first book with any donation!
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
